Ok playing with some ideas for my xmas print I think I know what I want to do.A friend have just given me a stack planks from shop fitting displays so I have decided to use the recycled wood to make the blocks for the print so I spent all day cutting some down to size. They are quite thick so I cam use both side and get the most out of my recycling
